The new Museum housed in a renovated sawmill has been entirely redesigned, focussing on the Regole d'Ampezzo, the century old common heritage of the Cortina d'Ampezzo valley.
The exhibition develops on two floors in the upper part of the building. On the first floor, the collective institution of the Regole d'Ampezzo and on the second floor the common heritage of the Regole and the collective management of forests and pasturelands.
In the basement, the space has been designed to house themed exhibitions, the precious collections of traditional arts and crafts - tarsia works, silver filigree, wrought iron and traditional costumes.
On the same floor there is a teaching classroom.
The scope of the exhibition is: to focus the attention of the visitors on the ancient decisions and choices that formed the forests and pasturelands that we admire today; to help visitors understand that over the centuries the collective management of the common heritage has been the main source of sustenance for the Ampezzo community; and finally to show that this ancient institution is still successfully functioning in our times.
Through a selection of objects and images the museum documents important cultural aspects of the Ampezzo community: the heritage of traditions and customs, the management of forests and pasturelands, and the century-old relationship of Man with the natural environment.
